Parklands Junior Team start with a Win

The Parklands Junior team played their first match of the season at home to Close House in the Turnberry section of the Northumbria Junior Golf League. The teams consist of six players, playing match play; the first two matches playing from scratch and the last four playing from handicap. There were a number of Close House team members who were ex Parklands members which reduced some of the home advantage. However, the Parklands members had a super performance winning the match 9-3.

Three of our players won their matches on the 15th hole, Ben Jones, Thomas Middleton and Finn Bell, but the best of the day was young Harrison Sewell who beat Matthew Brown 7-6.

It was a great team effort so thanks to all the players and their parents for the support.

Also whilst we focus on our junior members, congratulations go to Kane Mason who won the Men’s Sunday Competition – the Arthur Fowler Trophy. On a morning when the course was still recovering from the recent wet weather and during which we received a sustained downpour, Kane carded a great 40 points winning the trophy on countback. Well done.

Men’s Competition – Sunday 15th April

Parklands was open today albeit with only 9 holes available for play.  With all the good weather forecast today, It is hoped that all 18 will be open in the morning and we will play the Men’s Pattison Trophy/Jane Percy Qualifier competition as planned. The start sheet is shown on the Men’s Start Sheet tab.

In the event that there are less than 18 holes open and available to play, the competition will revert to a Captain’s sweep.

The Captain’s Drive-In 2018

Saturday, the 17th of March 2018, saw the start of the golfing season at Parklands Golf Club with the traditional Captains’ Drive-In. In conditions more akin to January than March, Chris Bowman, the Men’s Captain and Sarah Howson, the Lady Captain were watched by an expectant crowd of Parklands members as they prepared for the nerve testing feat of driving off in front of an audience. With the sun shining, the course closed, the first fairway sodden from 2 days of rain and a bitter wind from the east blowing the occasional snow flurry across the course, the Captain’s despatched their drives with aplomb and quickly got back to the warmth and comfort of the clubhouse. Members were asked to guess where the drives would finish and the winners were Anne Healey and Anne Conway.
